Sunshine and Happiness
Sunshine and Happiness
Life isn’t always sunshine and happiness for teens. Some try hard to please everyone only to be knocked down. For many in this situation, they would feel sorry for themselves and complain how things aren’t going their way. For others, they get up, dust themselves off and start walking down a new path without looking back.
This young man who was such a hard worker but also excited to finish school. He looked so handsome at his high school graduation in May of 2016 at 17 years old. When he turned 18, he left his foster home to move into his own apartment and continued to work as a server for as many hours as he could. In the back of us mind he knew he wanted to find a better job, hopefully working with automobiles. He filled out applications for as many places he could and when a well-known auto detailing shop asked him to come in for an interview, he was so excited. He went to the interview and was hired on the spot! The following Monday he went in for orientation and was to be in training for the next two weeks.
While he was so excited about his training, the owner was impressed as to how thorough he was on the detailing projects and he was told they were giving him his own booth the following week after only 4 days of training. This young man is such a hard worker and so detailed in the detailing he does. Just look at the difference of the before and after of this car engine.
But he did have help getting his life back on track and how totally happy he is now. Seems like when a young girl was in 8th grade, she had a crush on a 10th grade handsome guy. Fast forward about three years later, the two re-connected and they are so in love. She is almost 17 and he is almost 19. She is a junior in high school and since she has doubled her classes, she will be graduating a year early. Such a smart young lady who also works full-time plus going to school.
This young couple has set their goals high but both are so determined to move forward and make a beautiful life together. Since he works in auto detailing, his hands take a lot of abuse but and I love the picture of their hands with the caption she put on it. “His hands look like this so mine can look like this”.
